GIANT SQUID CATCHING+HAND PROCESSING | HOW TO CATCH BIG SQUIDS | FISHING PREPARING STREET FOOD SUSHI

Humboldt squid are among the largest of squids, reaching a mantle length of 1.5 m (4 ft 11 in). They have a reputation for aggression towards humans, though this behavior may possibly only be manifested during feeding times. Like other members of the subfamily Ommastrephinae, they possess bioluminescent photophores and are capable of quickly changing body coloration (metachrosis). They notably rapidly flash red and white while hunting, earning them the name diablo rojo (Spanish for “red devil”) among fishermen. These chromatophores (which belong to more than one set and are of different sizes) may rapidly cycle through colors other than red and white, flashing too quickly for the human eye to see the transitions. They can live up to two years.
